Given the increasing diversity of America’s population, the dangers of sectarianism have never been greater. Whatever this nation once was, it is no longer just a Christian nation.

It is also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation and a nation of nonbelievers.

What is happening now is not immigration as America once knew it, when men and women made a conscious choice to turn their backs on their native land and crossed the ocean to become Americans.

What is happening now is an invasion — perhaps the greatest invasion in history. Rarely has anything of the current magnitude happened in so short a span of time.

Nearly 90 percent of all immigrants now come from continents and countries whose people have never been assimilated fully into any western country.

“Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation …” — Matthew 12:25.
